A brand-new realty-TV show that sees contestants pitched against marauding zombies is to be shown on BBC Three, it has been revealed.
According to a report on Newsbeat, I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse will “see eight people trapped in a shopping centre surrounded by the walking dead.”
The general idea is that those taking part will need to avoid getting chomped by a zombie or they’ll “leave the show in a grisly style.”
The show has been commissioned by soon-to-be-axed BBC Three’s soon-to-be-leaving controller Zai Bennett. In a statement, Bennett said, “I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse is a reality event on a huge scale for BBC Three. It promises to be a deadly twist on the genre.”

I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse is to be made by Tiger Aspect, the production company that already makes a number of dramas for the BBC, including Peaky Blinders, Prisoners’ Wives and the recently saved Ripper Street.
The company also produces the comedies Benidorm for ITV, My Mad Fat Diary for E4 and Jack Whitehall’s Bad Education for BBC Three. Past hits have included Dawn French’s The Vicar of Dibley and Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean.
Transmission details for I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse have yet to be released. Meanwhile, BBC Three’s second season of its hit zombie drama series In the Flesh, which stars Luke Newberry, reaches its climax this coming weekend.
